    Women Vegetable Vendors

    from Davanagere, Karnataka

Story

In the district of Davangere in Karnataka, many widowed vegetable vendors sell vegetables by carrying immense loads on their heads. They walk up to 5-6 kms everyday from markets to various neighborhoods. This laborious task has health implications and is very risky for Rs 100 to Rs 200 as the profits they gain on a daily basis.

A lot of these women belong to families who depend entirely on them financially and lead extremely stressful lives. Karuna Jeeva Kalyana Trust (based out of Davangere) has pledged to help these hard working women by providing them with carts that can be pushed along.

Each cart costs up to Rs 12000 and Karuna Jeeva Kalyana Trust will contribute Rs 6000 for every Rs 6000 donated. We're looking to help raise money too buy around 30 of these vegetable carts.

Please help contribute however much you can. Every little donation will add up to something that will change the lives of these women for time to come.

Cost of one cart- Rs. 12,000
Cost of 30 Carts- Rs. 3,00,000 approximate.
